Ok, so can I be honest? I used to hate the word SALAD. UGH. It used to make me cringe. It reminded me of times as a child where I thought I was being punished. Everyone else was eating McDonald's french fries and my parents forced me to eat a nasty McDonald's salad. It also reminds me of eating and still starving afterwards because the Iceburg just didn't do it for me.
But, as I have continued to heal, I have found what works for me: Protein veggie bowls
There are endless options and variations, depending on your nutrition needs.
Here is one of my favorite BOWL recipes. If you are ok with the word, salad, and that makes you feel like you are on point with your health journey, call it that. But, I will reference it here as a bowl. 😁
Ok, I know you are ready for the recipe so here it is:
